With the advancement in technology, smartphones have assumed the role of wristwatches.
Today watches are adorned for style to complement fashion as an accessory.
However, there are watch enthusiasts who will trade a good wristwatch for anything.
Although wristwatches have become obsolete, there are functions that smartphones cannot perform, and only a specific wristwatch can.
Deep diving is a precise task that cannot be done using a smartphone but an exceptional deep diver watch.
Watch enthusiasts will pick a 1000M divers watch, even when they have no intention of going swimming let alone diving.
The most appealing part of a divers watch is the technology used to make them.
The craftsmanship of the wristwatch and its functionality are other reasons that a person will go for the deep divers watch.
Most divers cannot go to 1000M, but the watches have been designed that way.
The deepest most divers can go 300 meters.
The timepieces are not only for deep divers but even on a submarine that goes deep in the sea; the watches are essential.
Below are some wristwatches that can withstand pressure 1000M undersea.
